Sugar and spice and everything that’s nice about the world: desserts! We love to take note of our local dessert places in the area. Do you know where to go when you get a sweet tooth craving? We found a few places, just a quick drive away, that will satisfy your dessert needs.
Food and drinks are better on high-ground. We love trying new rooftop bars! Everything is just better with a great view. We hope you think so too! We found a few great rooftop bars within a half hour or less away, with food and cocktails almost as amazing as their scenery.
Do you love beachside dining? We do! Living in Irvine makes it convenient for those who like to sip mimosas or wine, with their meal, by the ocean. We have so many options for waterfront restaurants. We have a few delicious suggestions among the many options.
What’s your superpower? We can make wine disappear! We love to practice using our superpower at these local wine bars in our sweetly sophisticated town of Irvine. Do you have friends with a similar superpower? They’ll love these places too.
Who doesn’t love donuts? Raise your hand. For those who raised their hand, feel free to skip this post and go think about the error of your ways. For everyone else, we’ve got the goods for you! Donuts are a big deal in Southern California, and finding the right donut shop can be one of the more important decisions you can make. You need to have your favorite place ready to go for when your friends say “Have you tried Krispy Kreme? They are so good!” That’s not to say that Krispy Kreme is not delicious (especially right off the cooker), but you want to have an alternative to help open that friend’s eyes to the beauty of donuts. We’re here to help. Here are our top donut shops around Irvine.

What a time to be alive! In past generations, going out for a beer meant going to the closest watering hole, ordering a generic beer, and swigging back whatever brownish beverage was given. Today, we live in a golden age of craft breweries, where beer is finally given the respect it deserves.
Every year, Orange County residents sit down to watch Christmas movies, and they are shown feet of snow, people wrapped up in parkas and scarves, and ice skating on frozen ponds. We are told that Christmas time is always cold and white. It can sometimes feel like we are not getting the full Christmas experience when it is in the low 70’s in late December. If you have felt this way, there is hope! Surrounding yourself with Christmas spirit is the best way to fill yourself with the joy of the season. Here are our favorite way to have a holly jolly December around Irvine.
With the holiday season upon us, travel will be a more and more important aspect of our daily lives. Flying home to families, family flying home to us… Whether you’re coming or going, it is easy to get overwhelmed with the planning and execution of a successful trip. And how often do we stop to look at how we are getting there? At the miracle that is air travel. And at the history of the very methods we use to get from one place to another. Today, we want to take a look at our nearby gem, John Wayne International Airport.
For some, Thanksgiving is a holiday drenched in long-held family traditions. They go to the same family home with the same people to enjoy the same feast and activities.

And maybe one of these events will become your new yearly tradition! Here are some Thanksgiving activities for you to explore this year.
